misgivings about the mormon faith, it was not going to be enough to sway them from voting for obama. and the level of enthusiasm was relatively strong, even all the way into the final weeks of the campaign. it was not a lot of evidence that was a problem for them. i think the broader concern at related to the primaries and it from these past experience was that he had a favorability problem. he just was not an appealing candidates. not in terms of firing up the ideological base but appealing to the average american. by august his favorability ratings were still deeply negative territory. he had 37 percent of voters viewing him favorably. that is a -15 margin. we have never seen a presidential candidates be that- that late in an election cycle. you could go through the previous candidates whether it is bob dole who lost by a wide margin in 1996, john kerry, john mccain @ -- none of them was in negative territory. all of them few them more favorably than unfavorably. this was something we have not seen before. part of that reflects the greater polarization of american politics right n

'neill. obama needs to be ronald reagan. would vote for revenues, including tax rate hikes, even though i don't like them to save the country from becoming greece but i'm not going to set aside the 1.2 trillion in cuts. any hope of going over the fiscal cliff must start in the senate. not one democrat would support the idea that we could protect 99% of americans from a tax increase. boehner's plan b i thought made as soon as. to my republican kcolleagues, te the ronald reagan model is if you get 80% of what you want, that's a good day. i lime simpson-bowles. the president is going to get tax rate hikes. to my republican colleagues, if we can protect 99% of the public from a tax hike that, is not a tax increase in my book. chuck, maybe you and me and some other people in the senate can find a way to find this on the short term but on the long term there's not going to be a deal any time soon. >> you think we're going to go over the cliff? >> i think we're going to fall out of the fiscal tree. the big chance at the big deal is at the debt ceiling. that's when we'll have leverage to turn the cou
of the bowles mpson deficit commission and voted for the final report. that proposed almost $3 trillion in spending cuts. president obama's last offer the one that the republicans rejected was less than $1 trillion in spending cuts. we checked. that would be less than 2% of the $44 trillion the government will spend over the next decade. again, is that the best democrats can do? 2% of all of the spending over the next decade? >> you know, this conversation to me is exactly what is wrong in washington. i mean just listen to the conversation you have is just had. it is he said, she said, blame the other guy. look, i tried to be constructive here and lay out an actual plan to get us nearly $4 trillion by taking the offers that are on the table. speaker boehner and the president were so close and then speaker boehner went off on plan b. i never understood why. had no prospect of succeeding. it did not succeed even in his own caucus. now, the question. >> chris: but you are not answering my question. >> because i tell you something because we only have nine days left here. when are we going

is, because of barack obama's past record, he voted against a law where the illinois legislature wanted to say, if there's a local ordinance against the possession of handguns, that our law will override that if you defend your life or your property in your home. he voted no on that. there has been a panic since this event, unlike 2001 when there was a terror attack, when 3,000 people were killed. there wasn't a big rush to buy guns. there is now because people are fearful that the second amendment guarantee of right of gun ownership is going to be abdicated here because of this horrible event. >> bob marshall, you're the state delegate in virginia with an interesting proposal about the possibility of arming teachers in schools. >> some teachers. >> some teachers. please keep us posted on how this plays out. thank you for joining us today. dana? >> thanks, alina. >>> ahead on "starting point," more armstrong. who's suing him over those doping allegations? >> angels play a prominent role around christmastime, but are they real? one author says they are and that she can even see th

of the platform and when he was put back in it took three votes and when it was put back in, they booed god, which means to me the democratic party is a godless party. with the reelection of president obama, the slaughter of innocent unborn babies will continue. we have a president who supports partial birth abortion. but the americans made their decision. they want higher taxes, they want the slaughter of babies to continue and i find it's totally -- i am totally disillusioned with the american people for voting this president back into office. host: in new york. democratic caller. caller: i am in favor of religion and politics, because i believe our whole country has been found the on judicial system. the fact you are not to steal or to murder or to do, you know, thou shall not, the 10 commandments, are based upon the religious system. when you go into court, you have to put your hand on the bible to swear to tell the truth and nothing but the truth, so help you god. so absolutely. this is one of the reasons i would like to comment that our country is going to the place where it is now because w

the most significant foreign policy challenge for president obama and our world is iran. nuclear weapons program. chuck hagel has had some very outlying votes on that. >> i don't think he's going to get many republican votes. i like chuck, but his positions, i really didn't know all of them, frankly well out of the main street and to left of the president. >> he is the subject of a new ad opposing his nomination as defense secretary. dana, what do you think? he might not sail through like john kerry. is he going to get the votes you think? >> i think the question is whether or not he is even going to get the nomination given the comments he made. the senate is a club, and they like to give props to the club. senator haggle was not one of the most popular members of the club and that's coming out right now. >> and john kerry was and is as you well known. dana, coming up, a devastating story to tell you about. more than 100 people killed when a bakery is bombed in syria. the latest on the devastation and why the government is firing on its own people. next. this holiday, share everything.
, i want to go back to what joe said earlier. the big story of this election is president obama won and won not just in a race that everyone said was going to be razor thin, it would be super close, he ends up winning with 52% of the vote we now know one of only five presidents in history who has won more than 51% in two successful elections. >> and it's not even close when it comes to the swing states. >> correct. >> nine, ten, 11 swing states for a year and a half. at the end of the day it was no close. >> and no one could predict it? >> one that portends a lot for the future of american politics with this coalition of the ascendant that elected him, college educated americans. this is what the future looks like and his victory showed it. on the other side, beyond his victory was, of course, mitt romney's loss and there's probably no single moment that signified everything that was problematic with romney's candidacy more than the 47% video. he had been painted by his own 0 words and by president obama's team as a heartless, out of touch democrat and it made it difficult to be suc
the senate gathered and they passed obama care. they passed it along party lines, 60-39 vote. it wasn't until march that the house ultimately passed that over 2,000-page bill and the president signed it, but the reason i'm bringing all this up is simple. we've heard a lot of issues on the fiscal cliff the last several months and of course some of the best stories on the fiscal cliff have been right here on cnbc. we have the badges to prove it. but, hey. the senate, the house, the president, they all want to do what's best especially harry reid and his gang. they're so worried about everybody in the fiscal cliff. they're obviously worried about how a & p is going to affect people, marginal tax rates, the middle class. good. people need to be worried about the middle class but exactly how worried are they? where there is a will there is a way. there was a will in 1895, a will three years ago. yeah, 2009. but obviously there is a whole lot more talk than action because, let's see, i hear crickets or i hear some hula music but i certainly don't hear the ruffling of papers as any bill is getting p
what he did? he bailed out. he affectively called for a general election. it was much worse than obama's first debates. he appeared before them and was like "don't vote for me." he lost that election. he has not spoken since. he is having a nice holiday. and then there was papandreou. who was a 2006. who unfortunately, he did not see the crisis of the eurozone collapse in. -- collapsing. the eurozone had no foundation. there was an earthquake. between 1995 and 2008 god and his angels descended on an athens and ran the show. with rationality, omniscience, egos, and morality -- ethos, and morality. greece would not have been the first domino to fall. but it would have been the third. grace would have fallen after ireland or possibly after portugal. it was never designed to sustain a crisis like 2008. we were doomed. finally, the united states that we know today is the result of the crisis of the 19th century and the early 20th century. 1 very preciously saw the crisis -- and still there is a commonality of debt, and effective recycling of debt, the road be no such thing as a nation that
